The entrance is like the typical American Restaurant, and the rest is simply to admire it. They recieve you with a huge smile, and they place you in the best seat the can. The food is amazingly tasty, the meat is so chewy and well done, nad its compained with typical french fries or with pepper roll fries, which are... More

Barney's deserves an excellent rating for its skill at preparing fresh and delicious burgers, grilled chicken breasts and turkey burgers. The range of entrees and salads places them above the traditional gourmet burger outlets. The sweet potato fries are a true highlight.

Lovely fries but undercooked hot dog that had to be sent back THREE times. I don't believe that reheating cooked meat three times is safe either.

However, despite many "Best of Berkeley" awards on the walls (mostly from the late 1990s and early 2000s), in my perception, it didn't quite rate these accolades.

Location excellent for their fare but it's more than a variety of burgers. Indoor and outdoor seating for those sunny days and some of the best Hot Dogs in town. Yummy!!

I know this is one of the favorite burgers in town, but it isn't nearly as good as Barney's in LA. The fries are as bad as frozen store fries and the bun is too big and soft.

Good gourmet burger, tasty curly fries, and yummy Turkish coffee milkshake. Fun ambiance, friendly service, reasonable price. A nice place to hang out and catch up with friends or family.

The burger was dry and the service was the worst. We waited forever to get our plates cleaned from the table and get our check at the end of the meal.
